5 Steps to Get Your Movie Website Indexed by Search Engines

Getting your movie website indexed by search engines is not as mysterious or as arduous a task as it might seem. By getting indexed by major search engines, you improve your SERPs and increase the traffic to your website at the same time.

1.) Social Websites

One of the public relations tricks I learned about early on when creating my movie website was to register with social websites: Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Digg, ShowHype, MovieBlips, HorrorBlips, MySpace, etc., using the name for my website. For example, on Twitter, instead of using my real name, King Raoul the Conqueror (I’m kidding), I used the name for my website i.e. twitter/the name of my website. By using your website’s name as your username and linking to your movie website (if the particular social website allows you to, Twitter does), you will get your website indexed and for those targeted keywords.

2.) Weblog Network Websites

Joining weblog network websites helps get the word out about your website across a vast network. Look into: Networked Blogs, LAMB, MyBlogLog, Blogged, BlogCatalog, etc. These sites have a good PR (Page Rank) and by joining them, search engines are forced to acknowledge your website’s presence. Be sure to list your website in the proper category along with proper tags and keywords and remember,  first impressions are important so include a logo if you have one, screen shots of your website, and a well written, edited, and keyword-laden description of your website.

3.) Statistical / Valuation Websites

Some, if not all, of the statistical /valuation websites have good search engine ranking since they are moderately trafficked by those searching for the value of and statistical information on their website. Here are some popular ones and some you were probably never aware of: Alexa, WhoIsGoogle Analytics, AboutTheDomain, QuarkBase, BuiltWith, URLFan, CubeStat, WebsiteOutlook, Quantcast, WebsiteTrafficAgents, StatBrain, etc. Once you sign up, a page will be created on their website for your website and since they are already indexed by search engines, so will your website and soon.

4.) RSS Feed Aggregators

Adding your RSS Feed URL to these RSS Feed Aggregators enables them to track and list the content of your feed, i.e. your posts, on their site. When someone clicks on the title of one of your posts on their website, the person will be taken to your post. When your post is clicked, your latest posts will be indexed by search engines. Here are a few RSS Feed Aggregators: FeedBurner, Google Reader, FeedAdageFriendFeedDigNow, OctoFinder, NetVibes, Bloglines, etc. You can also look here for some more.

5.) Miscellaneous

By listing your website in a website directory and under the proper category, you make your website far more visible and easier to find by interested parties. Dmoz (Open Directory Project) is a good website directory to start with. When it comes to internet weblog search engines, try Technorati.

  • Great advice in here, thank you. Here's a question for you that might have been answered somewhere else on your site already: PIngbacks from other sites, the kind that show up as a exerpt-looking comment on my blog. Should I be deleting these? Spamming them? Should I leave them where they are? I think I read somewhere that if the pingback is from a spammy aggregator site, it could actually lower my page rank by association. I'm starting to get a number of pingbacks from a site called starttags.com and I'm not sure if they're poison for the page rank that I've been working so hard to cultivate. Any thoughts?

      I do not delete them. I like seeing that others are liking and linking to my content. That site, starttags, looks a like sketchy so I might delete those (but I do not know if those pingbacks are negatively affecting your site). Checking the source of the pingback is prudent.
